testosterone therapy

I am a 69 year old female, who had  a heart stent @ age 59............NO family history, good cholesterol numbers and ratio of HDL/LDL.  Have been careful since, with routine check ups/blood work/ good eating practices/ exerise/ Crestor/ Zetia/aspirin daily.

I am 5'1.............small frame...................117 pounds......................newest bone density test showed too much decline in bone mass...............I also take OTC calcium and extra D.

My GYN is suggesting a low dose testosterone pellet....................my cardio doctor is leary.  Research on here has everyone saying something different, some for, some against.  Have no idea which way to go.
